  1. I love the "WTF! Why are GW raising their prices? Reaper lowered theirs!!" posts all over the forums. :D
  2. I've got a boatload of road warrior figures I've collected and converted over the years. Stan Johansen has a bunch of 20mm road warrior figures that work well with matchbox cars. Not that I'm trying to be an enabler. *cough* http://www.stanjohansenminiatures.com/Road.htm
  3. Yup - according to the website - 10 models for 41.50. The latest WD has them pictured in a 15 man unit. Foundry landsknechts and dopplesoldners are a much cheaper alternative now. ;)
  4. One thing I discovered is that a) GW paints thin with rubbing alcohol and b) I had to thin them so much the paint was more like a transparent dye. If only I didn't need all my rhinos and LR in snot green.... Next time I'm using actual modelling paints. THOSE I understand in an airbrush... Damon. I've been using the GW paint thinned with the airbrush medium I have. I'm going to try windex some time soon. I did overthin one color, it was unfortunate - I do like the ability to slowly build up color. I'd like to try a 90mm figure some time with the brush
  5. I adore the lads from WF - but honestly, their models have been really poor. Even their celts are pretty rough and on the small side. The detail isn't very crisp (their feet look like they are melting into the ground) etc. I'd not put much faith in their greatcoat infantry. I do like the Pig Iron figures quite a bit though, and being able to order just heads and backpacks is fantastic for converting your guard. I just put together and painted a Valkyrie last week, and honestly - this is an amazing kit. Every sci-fi force needs them as dropships. I see myself building quite a few more. They also have door guns and gunners, sliding door and a rear hatch that drops, and it wasn't a nightmare to put together (just remember to use white glue on the canopy bits or else it will fog up from the CA fumes) I'm rather excited about the new tank kits too. Since I've gotten over my fear of my airbrush, I've been painting armor like a fiend.
  6. Oh, is that the Walther P-38 off the RotD German Officer? That might be it!! I was thinking it was the US Pistol from the officer, but I'm not remembering the officer now.
  7. On the 20'th Century sprue I think they are from left to right - 1) Revolver 2) Colt 1911 3) Trench Knife 4) M1 Garand 5) Sawed off shotgun 6) Thompson w/ rectangle magazine 1) Kar 98 2) Winchester type reapeater 3) MG-42 4) Sturmgewehr (I think, being on a sprue with mostly german WWII weapons) 5) BAR with carry handle attached 6) MP-40
  8. Salute is on my List of Things To Do - but for now, it is one heck of a hike for me. Have fun guys! Take lots of pictures.
  9. 'nough said! How can you argue with Conan?!? If a weapon is oversize, then it is probably magical and not difficult to wield, so unless you are playing an historically accurate game, which fantasy miniatures are not designed for, what is the big deal? As Quato said to Quade, "Open your mind. Open your mind." That also reinforces the "Because it is awesome" truism as well....
  10. Tom Meier (Thunderbolt Mountain) is another one who makes realistic sized weapons (and proportions on his models - he is one of the few that can pull it off really well without it looking weird) For me, I like the oversized weapons, hafts the size of phone poles and hands the size of their head. :) PS. I am being serious about the oversized stuff...
  11. Can't wait to see him. Interesting uniform reference. I don't know much about the Russo-japanese war. It seems somewhat interesting, I've seen some figures for it. Can't wait to see your work!
  12. Down 20 - still going to the gym at least 3 times a week after work and at least 1 time on the weekend and swimming around a mile every day at lunch. My A1C is a 6.4 and dropping, my bad cholesterol is back in really good ranges and I'm trying to get my HDL up from the 40's to the 60's.
  13. The reason weapons are oversized in the fantasy world is the same reason EVERYTHING explodes like small nuclear detonation in the action film world.... "because it is awesome" Just repeat this mantra in your head and you'll be fine. :)
  14. :D That made my morning. It is as good as "I had to cut off your hand Luke, you'd have gone blind otherwise"
  15. You get cool points just for quoting the Fallout series of games.
  16. It projects the lightning... onto other metal boats. Therefore it is a good thing. Unless you have a malfunction- which is catastrophic - but such is the way with experimental prototype weapons.
  17. I'm glad you went with the lightning guns.
  18. I like 6mm. You can find Epic stuff for sale pretty cheaply on e-bay from time to time as well.
  19. A chipper shredder and a pig farm works better...or so I've heard. Don't return the chipper clean - make sure you run wood through it first. Also, shave the hair and remove the teeth. :) I'm just sayin'.
  20. Sweet. :) I've got a soft spot for 60's TV
  21. At first I was thinking, "What swat team in the world uses P-90s..." and then I was all.... Oh! I see what you did there. ;) LOL!
  22. A friend of mine has placed a few orders, which all arrived really quickly.
  23. Greeks! :D I don't think they make the cuts in their digital sculpts "deep" enough - I have their british colonials, and while they are nice, the detail isn't quite there - it is too "soft" unlike the Warlord Games celts which are brilliant.
  24. Get a bunch of them and you can game a killer scene from "Shoot 'em Up"
